Chlamydia Pcr Test Positive
I had unprotected oral sex on me I saw no blood I have no sores I am circumsized I have tooken a HIV dna pcr test at 18 days and a 46 also a 4 week and 6 week duo test and a 8 week rapid test am I ok?
You're OK: Oral sex is safe sex for HIV, with no proved transmissions by fellatio from mouth to penis, only rare ones penis to oral. You didn't need testing on account of this event and for sure not the multiple expensive ones you had. But the results from that combination of tests are conclusive. For sure you didn't catch HIV during that exposure and no further testing is needed. Best wishes and stay safe! ...Read more
Polymerase chain reaction is a method of finding a specific piece of dna and copying it over and over again until there is enough to study. The technique allows a scientist to detect very small amounts of dna in a swab sample then reproduce enough of it to study it. It is very sensisitive for detecting the presence of certain bacteria and is also used in doing other ...Read more

Would a urine PCR test is sufficient for detection of chlamydia trachomatis for women or have a chance for false negative result?
Would taking Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for 2 days make me falsely negative for Chlamydia? It was a PCR test.
Probably not: Sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim (Bactrim) can suppress chlamydia, so it could lead to a false negative test result. However, 2 days is too soon. Even with the most effective antibiotics against chlamydia (e.g., doxycycline, azithromycin) it usually takes a few days for DNA tests (like PCR) to become negative. So your result probably is reliable. But if in doubt, discuss with the doctor or clinic. ...Read more
Can taking augmentine for 3 days cause a false negative PCR test for gonorrhea and chlamydia? Is 9 days after sex enough time to do these tests?
Hello doctor, assume, a man has lgv and test only c.Trachomatis IgG or c.Trachomatis pcr, should result come positive for chlamydia?
Is there a specific test to culture chlamydia? I want to know what Rx it's sensitive to. I tested + PCR semen, but rx not helping at all. Culture was-
No need: As discussed previously, your chlamydia PCR test probably was falsely positive and chlamydia doesn't cause prostatitis. Also, chlamydia is ALWAYS susceptible to the same antibiotics, like the tetracyclines and azithromycin. There is never a need to test it for antibiotic sensitivity. ...Read more
June last year I was tested negative for chlamydia (PCR). 2 weeks ago I got IgG positive, IgM negative. Does that mean I was infected in the meantime?
Chlamydia antibody: Your blood test results are consistent with your past chlamydial infection. However, the blood test only detects antibody (the immune response to infection), not chlamydia itself. Once positive, the IgG blood test is positive for many years, often for life. To know if you currently have chlamydia, you'll need another PCR-type test from the vagina or a urine specimen. ...Read more
I have a 3 yrs old kid (girl)&want to test genital chlamydia. Which test is the best to detect chlamydia trachcomatis except urine pcr?
Positive semen PCR chlamydia. Mainly urethra tip discomfort 24/7. Rx? Is this chronic bacterial prostatitis? Unprotected oral unknown partner. Plzhelp
Chronic pelvic pain?: Chlamydia doesn't cause prostatitis, and is rarely acquired by oral sex -- maybe false positive test? Maybe chronic pelvic pain syndrome, or genital anxiety, not true prostatitis. You've been asking repeated questions. Follow your doctor's advice, or see an infectious diseases specialist or urologist. Your situation is too complex for a forum like this; don't expect any further advice. Good luck. ...Read more
Negative urine PCR. Positive chlamydia semen PCR. Any difference regarding treatment? Can infection spread to other parts? (i.e my left stomach hurts)
Tissue specific: Your chlamydia likes to live in certain tissues, like the linings of your urinary tract. It is not going to go from there into your stomach (tissue is different).You can feel bad when you are sick, as a non-specific symptom, and the common treatment for chlamydia, azithromycin can cause GI upset or cramping in some patients. ...Read more

10%: Around 10% of patients with hcv + will have negative PCR viral load. This means either a false positive (confirmed with negative riba) or cleared previous infection. ...Read more
I had PCR test done and regular blood work for hsv1 and I was negative. Never had a sore. I recently did regular blood work now hsv1 is positive.?
Typical: Not sure why "regular blood work" would include HSV1, but becoming positive without having any symptoms or signs of infection is very common. Most people who test positive can't really say when they might have been infected. Very unlikely to be infectious if no sores present, but most prudent would inform potential intimates--from kissers to lovers. Good wishes:) ...Read more
I had an HBV DNA PCR test and it came out to be 13 iu/ml...Is it a matter of tension? My lft and other tests come out to be positive although
Hepatitis B: Having a positive hbv dna and "other tests positive" in general means you have hepatitis b. This is not do to tension. Without knowing the specifics of your other blood tests and overall condition, I would see your liver specialist to see if you need treatment or if you can just have your liver tests checked every few months. ...Read more

Serology better: The pcr (viral load) is generally not recommended as a diagnostic test; it's used in people who are already known to have HIV to monitor therapy. The HIV serology (antibody test) is preferred for diagnosis, as pcr is more subject to false positives and false negatives. However, pcr can be used to diagnose acute retroviral syndrome (primary infection). It should be very high at that stage. ...Read more
Pertussis was foun: It means that they found evidence that the bacteria that causes whooping cough was present in the nasal passages. This could mean you are a carrier of the disease (could infect others) or if you are having symptoms or repeated, serious cough, then you likely got infected by the pertussis bacteria and have whooping cough. ...Read more
Does a weak or moderate hemolysis (of blood serum) have any effect on qualtative HCV rt-pcr test?
HCV test: Hemolysis should not affect the hcv pcr test. You should still get an accurate viral load count. Of course it will affect the rbc, mcv, hmc, and other labs concerning the red blood cells. ...Read more
If the HIV dna/pcr test is used for early detection, is it more or less sensitive between the 3-6 month period?
HIV PCR Test: This test is 100% accurate fourteen to twenty-one days after exposure. It does not need to be repeated after that if you are negative. ...Read more
What is the level of sensitivity of the HIV-1 RNA PCR test by Aptima? Is it accurate at 2 to 3 weeks post exposure?
Yes: Read the CDC updated recommendations on HIV testing. The rationale for this test being available is that HIV RNA is detectable in plasma before antibodies. A safe approach is to be tested after the eclipse period after potential exposure when no RNA nor antibodies to HIV can be detected. The RNA test is effective around 10 days after infection but seroconversion to antibodies may take 3 months. ...Read more
Is HIV antibodies test conclusive at 3 months after exposure? And is DNA PCR test conclusive after 45 days after exposure?
HIV Infection: Technically speaking PCR is conclusive at the time of infection. The moment HIV enters the human blood stream it explodes. Viral tires go into the multiple millions. So testing by PCR would easily catch this. The problem is. It is not intended to be used as a screening test due to the cost. So. the antibody test at 3 months is good. But 6 months out is needed to be conclusive in my opinion. ...Read more
Is it possible for a person to have HTLV1 symptoms but still test negative on antibody and pcr test? Immune system is too weak?
It is unlikely that you have HTLV 1. It takes many years for symptoms to develop and person would have positive antibody result. You may consult this site for information on this topic.
